Deal DetailsLast Edited by JohnOM July 20, 2016 at 07:37 PM
Hey everyone, I was browsing the Walmart app looking for some recently posted deals and I came across some more very YMMV deals that some of you may hopefully fortunate enough to find. I have not yet purchased any of these myself since I've been at work but I personally am almost more tempted to attempt another PM at Best Buy/Walmart/Target like I have done in the past (got the Vizio M60 from BB for $528 PM'ing Walmart App/Website) before I make the 25 minute trip to the walmart reporting these low prices and "in stock" availability. I've taken screen shots of them as well in the event that someone may need them for any price protection claims.
For reference, you can use 30291 to verify the prices. I'm going to temporarily refrain from listing the other store that shows the items in stock so that I can actually attempt to check inventory before some moron decides to call the store and alert the employees of a potential deal. For those that want to use the price protection claims, feel free to PM me and I'll give you the info that you need for the screenshots (or you can have mine). I have provided clips of the screenshots but cut out the relevant info on the store, temporarily!
UN65H6203 (item 36483180) - $249 brickseek (unfortunately it shows out of stock on the app as well)
UN65J6200 (item 44162681) - $249 brickseek (shows up as being in stock for me and at that price using the app)
UN60J6200 (item 44162678) - $199 brickseek (shows up as being in stock for me and at that price using the app)
UN50J5200 (item 46285066) - $124 brickseek (shows up as being in stock for me and at that price using the app)
UN43J5200 (item 45161378) - $99 brickseek
For those that have been chasing all of the recent Walmart YMMV deals and paying attention, there are some specific stores that often drop the prices long before any of the other stores. If you have been paying attention during these deals you may have noticed which stores are the ones that most frequently drop prices and you'll already have an idea which stores you'll want to focus on when you use brickseek or the app. I have confirmed that these prices match exactly in two of the Walmart stores that I know that usually drop prices before others (in two different states so it's not likely to be random chance). Keep in mind that these prices may not ever drop at other Walmarts, but if you know which stores are the pilot stores that usually receive notice from corporate to drop prices then keep an eye on them and see if you see any changes.
Auto Refund: Ordering a TV that is eligible for PICKUP TODAY in a store that reflects the lower price on brickseek and the app/walmart store page will automatically refund you the difference of the full amount that you pay to order online and the in store price.
No Refund: Ordering a TV for SITE TO STORE (this can be easily noticed by the fact you'll have a delayed estimated day to pick up) will NOT automatically refund you the difference of the lower price and you'll be stuck with a full price TV and will have to attempt the buy/return/re-buy process.
Price matching method
This is also YMMV, but I have had great success with this in the past with best buy as I mentioned above.
1. Start with brickseek and search the item #. Find the local stores that list the item for the lowest prices. Inventory does not matter on brickseek, just find the low prices and proceed to the next step.
2. Open the Walmart app and search for the item by name or description.
3. Filter the search results to "At Your Store" and then type in your zip code to get a list of local stores. (I recommend disabling location services for this)
4. Select the store that had the lowest price on your brickseek search.
5. Return to filtered search results. If the item is in stock at that store you will see it listed in the search results with the same price you saw on brickseek. USE THIS PAGE FOR YOUR PRICEMATCH. DO NOT DO ANYTHING ADDITIONAL.
6. If the item is not listed as in stock at that store, repeat from step 4 and choose another store that had the lower price (if available).
7. DO NOT CLICK ON THE ITEM FROM WITHIN THE SEARCH RESULTS. Doing so will bring you to the generic Walmart.com page for that item and will show the Walmart.com price, which is almost guaranteed not to match the discounted price in store.
8. DO NOT CLICK ADD TO CART TO "VERIFY PRICING" OF THE ITEM. Doing this means you failed to follow step 7 correctly and once again the price you will be adding to the cart is from Walmart.com, not the price seen in your local store. Sometimes BB employees get a warm and fuzzy feeling about doing a PM when they see that you are able to add the item to your cart, I know. If you find yourself in this situation, you can also replicate these same results using the full walmart.com webpage and using the "Search our shelves" feature from within the designated "my local store" section. Use THIS on BB's PC to show that the item is in stock at your local store that is within 25 miles since that is part of their price match policy (seen here )
Quote :What is considered a local retail competitor?
A local retail competitor for retail store purchases is a retail store authorized by a vendor to sell a new, factory-sealed product with a warranty and is located in the same market area (within a 25-mile radius) of your local Best Buy store. A local retail competitor for BestBuy.com purchases is a retail store authorized by a vendor to sell a new, factory-sealed product with a warranty and is located in the same market area (within a 25-mile radius) as either the billing address or the shipping address on record for the purchase.
DISCOVER PRICE MATCH PROCESS
Quote from LegendAssassin :Hey would it be possible for you to add the procedure for Discover's price matching on the OP? A ton of people are asking about it.
Discover Price Matching:
1) Purchase the item in full on your Discover Card
2) Take screenshot of the item with the price matching price along with the date. I personally just google "What day is it?" and put it side by side the website so the full page has the item, price, and date.
3) Wait until the payment on your Discover card goes from "Pending" to cleared.
4) Log into your account and click on "Activity and Payments" then click on "Recent Payment"
5) Click on "Save to PDF"
6) Depending on the purchase have the receipt or prepare a screenshot of the purchase that includes the date and purchase price that matches your Discover card payment.
For Amazon it is a bit tricky if you brought multiple items you have to have to go to the "Order" page and click on the "Transactions" so it shows the purchase price of each item.
7) Call this number: 1-800-347-0213 and talk to an operator and ask for a Price Match Protection Claim. They will transfer you to another person and you will have to give them your information.
8) Once you have finished that you will get an email that has the process for filing it. This is where you would put your screenshot of the price match, your recent statement, and receipt or screenshot of your purchase.
9) You add all of those items and you wait a few days for someone to check it and it will either be approved or denied. If everything goes smoothly it will approve you wait a few move days and it will switch to "Paid" and before you know it a check will come in the mail.
Here are two new tools to navigate the head-spinning number of deals. For this initial round, I just searched for hdtv on brickseek and massaged the data in Excel.
Feel free to contribute to the editable version! There are surely some hidden gems still remaining for lucky souls. My results have been mixed. They're less likely to part with the larger "on wall" display units for whatever reason, but the YMMV-ness of it all makes my head spin. They say judges are more lenient after lunchtime and breakfast, so perhaps the same applies for walmart managers? Haha worth a shot. In my case it was a matter of finding someone friendly with the authority to sell display units.

FOR CREDIT CARD PRICE PROTECTION CLAIMS
Use this link on your PC to take a screenshot of the item being in stock and at the lower price. I have attached two screenshots that can be used for price protection claims, both showing the items in stock and for the discounted price. If these aren't sufficient then you'll have to use this link (or provide your own from another Walmart store) to create your own screenshot.
*** AMAZON PRICE MATCH PROCESS!!!*** THIS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED TO WORK BY THE OP JohnOM Update as of 5pm CST, this process may be DEAD with Amazon due to an overwhelming amount of price match requests on Samsung and Hisense TVs from Walmart. VERY YMMV.
Wow!!! I just got Amazon to price match TWO UN60J6200's for $199 each! Kill them with kindness and you shall succeed!
1. Greet them nicely and use their name often. "Hello, John!" "Yes, sir!" "No problem, John" "Thank you, John!" etc.
2. Have your Walmart URL showing your local store's search results for the TV you want to price match already to go. For example: here is one you could use if you live near ATL
3. Follow this link (https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/co...?skip=true) and choose: (1) Prime or something else, (2) Placing an order (3) Other questions (4) Type TV price match, (5) Contact via "Chat"
4. Via chat, tell them that you called in yesterday and spoke to someone on the phone and they told you that you could get the price match and to just come online via chat and provide them with the info.
5. Give them the link to the amazon item (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&
6. Give them the link to the FILTERED Walmart page showing YOUR LOCAL STORE's search results for that item. For example, filter the site to your store and then search "UN60J6200" in the "search our shelves" bar. If done correctly you should have only ONE search result (item must show as in stock and for the $199 price) link example
7. Let them do their thing. Kindness is the key here!
8. If at first you don't succeed... try AGAIN. I tried twice yesterday and had no luck. Tried again at 9:30am and it was the easiest process I've ever had with Amazon chat.
For the "Auto-refund" part in the post: Walmart will only refund you the price difference, the additionally taxed part will never be refunded.
For example, the items you paid on their website was $1000, you would pay $1000 + $1000 * 7% = $1070. Your store price was actually $400, so when you picked up, walmart will automatically refund you the price difference ($600). Your total would come to $400 + $1000 * 7%. See the problem? You still paid tax for the $1000 price. Always asking help from higher level rep or manager in store to solve this issue, explaining this to a regular rep was wasting of time.
